# How to insert a trademark symbol? (tm)

How do you insert a trademark symbol in LaTeX? That is, the "TM" superscript.

• \textregistered creates a ® while \textsuperscript{TM} puts TM as superscript in text mode. – Pouya Apr 1 '14 at 17:01

Package textcomp adds symbols with TS1 encoding and provides symbol \texttrademark:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{textcomp}

\begin{document}
\end{document}


• Great thanks! One more question: when I use \texttrademark, the space following it gets removed (even though I include a space after it in the source code). For example, "somenameTMis a..." but I'd like "somenameTM is a..." – MD004 Apr 1 '14 at 17:28
• @MD004: \texttrademark\ is a (or \texttrademark{} is a), see Space after LaTeX commands. – Heiko Oberdiek Apr 1 '14 at 17:34
• @Whitecat ~ can be used, when a line break is to be prevented after the trade mark symbol. – Heiko Oberdiek Nov 18 '15 at 19:06
• @RickHenderson The outcome of \textregistered depends on the font and the font encoding. This question is about the trade mark symbol. Therefore, \textregistered is a little of topic here. – Heiko Oberdiek Mar 14 '17 at 19:13

Note that LaTeX supports and shows correctly also the ™ character.

(tested with \usepackage[utf8x]{inputenc})

• Nice! This is a much neater solution IMO – tdc May 24 '18 at 12:52
